What a bummer! These seasonal illnesses can be such a pain. Here’s to a speedy recovery!

A couple circadian tips:

1. As the season progresses, getting smart UV exposure can help diversify your microbiome. I use the dminder app (http://dminder.ontometrics.com/features.html) to estimate Vit D potential and production while avoiding sunburn (sunscreen also blocks Vit D synthesis, so it’s not helpful for microbiome support or Vit D production). https://doi.org/10.1080/19490976.2020.1745044

2. Every day, the gut lining has the opportunity to repair itself, but it can only do so at night during the darkness. Therefore, keeping to a strict daylight-only eating schedule can ensure your body has nightly autophagy, which is what will heal the lining from disturbances and injury. https://doi.org/10.1093/nutrit/nux036

Hope you feel better soon, and thanks for sharing your healing journey!
